After hitting a good drive, I duck-hook my second shot into the lake fronting the green on the eighteenth hole. Suddenly I recall something Elmer T. Lee told me earlier in the week about Colonel Blanton. Asked why he always put the water in first when diluting his bourbon, Blanton replied, "If you add bourbon to water, you’re making the water better. If you add water to bourbon, you’re making the bourbon worse."

And when you add a golf ball to water?On second thought, I just drop another and reload.
